- ICT for Intelligent Vehicle Systems for further improving road safety and overall performance of transportation systems. This includes advanced in-vehicle safety systems with improved performance and reduced costs, based on open standard elements; systems supporting autonomous driving (first in restricted environments and later on open environments); new approaches to crash avoidance and collision reduction including development of sensors and sensor networks; human machine interface design principles; advanced methods for traffic situation detection and communication (including vulnerable road users); and technologies for addressing digital footprint, data security and privacy of in-vehicle applications; numerical and experimental methods and technologies for design and evaluation of systems under real world conditions; methods for the design and evaluation of systems. Projects need to take an integrated approach to safety, considering together the infrastructure, vehicles, drivers and other transport users.
- ICT for Clean and Efficient Mobility for further improving energy efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions in all modes of transport. This includes new tools, systems and services supporting energy-efficient driving (eco-driving) based on on-board systems and/or co-operative infrastructure and energy-optimised, adaptive traffic control and management technologies and systems for urban areas and inter-urban road networks. It also includes methodologies for assessing the impact of advanced ICTs in energy efficiency and CO2 reduction, aiming at international harmonisation and standardisation of the methodologies through co-operation with Japan and the USA.
Coordination and Support Actions
A common research agenda for energy efficiency by enhancing international cooperation; increased user awareness and dissemination of research results by supporting the Intelligent Car Initiative and the eSafety Forum, by supporting standardisation and by preparing a common showcase for cooperative systems.
- World leadership of Europe's industry in the area of Intelligent Vehicle Systems and expansion to new emerging markets, improving the competitiveness of the whole transport sector and the automotive industry.
- Significant improvements in safety, security and comfort of transport. This includes contribution towards the objective of reducing fatalities with 50% in the EU by 2010, and longer term work towards the 'zero-fatalities' scenario.
- Significant improvements in energy efficiency, emissions reduction and sustainability of transport. This includes contribution to reduction in the energy consumption and congestion in road transport.
